IEEE Memory Day: History, Current Status, and Future of Semiconductor Memory

November 3, 2016 @ 13:30 - 19:00

Co-sponsored by: Nanotechnology Council-Northern Virginia/Washington DC Chapter and Micron Technology Foundation.

IEEE Electron Devices Society-Northern Virginia/Washington DC Chapter is pleased to announce an IEEE Semiconductor Memory Day Event on November 3, 2016. This event will consist of four presentations and a Fab tour. Four guest speakers will give their talks about the History of Semiconductor Memory, Current Landscape of Memory Industry, Future Emerging Memory, and Space/Radiation Effect in Memory Devices, respectively. After the presentations, we will host a Fab window tour to allow participants to experience the state-of-the-art semiconductor facility of Micron Technology Memory Fab and interact with Micron engineers. This event will provide a great opportunity for college students and anyone who has never been to a semiconductor Fab before to learn the advanced semiconductor manufacturing facility/processes. At the end of the Memory Day, you will have a good understanding about the entire spectrum of Semiconductor Memory. 

This event is co-sponsored by Nanotechnology Council-Northern Virginia/Washington DC Chapter and Micron Technology Foundation.

***Participants are not required to stay through the entire event and they can attend part of the event based on their own schedule, but pre-registration is required for security badges preparation.

Speaker(s): Rashmi Jha, Nadim Haddad 


Note: Pre-Registration is required to prepare security badges and get headcount.
